A Wheel and Away

National Rail Museum

Delhi, India


Fabulous museum with an outdoor exhibition that feels like a train graveyard.  More than 30 trains are on exhibit from steam engines to royal carriages, representing more than 160 years of Indian railways.It is also the location of the Fairy Queen, a steam locomotive built in 1855, still working and considered to be the best preserved example of her time. Have a look at the Prince of Wales Saloon or the Maharajah of Mysore’s carriage. Not just for trainspotters, the museum offers a fun and informative day out for young and old alike with the chance to stand at the controls and pretend to be a real train driver!

General accessibility information

A large part of the museum is outdoors and is generally accessible.  It is fairly level and has a paved path going around most of it, although this is a little worn in places.  There is plenty of room to manoeuvre.  Most of the trains can only be viewed from the outside although it is allowed to go in a few.  This would be problematic for wheelchair users as there are steps to get in, however there is more than enough to see to make this a very worthwhile place to visit nonetheless

Disabled toilet facilities
